Some Lesser Known Facts About Mana Shetty
- Mana Shetty is a popular Indian businesswoman and social activist.
- She met Suniel Shetty for the first time at the age of 17 at Pastry Palace on the Nepean Sea Road in Mumbai. At that time Suniel was not an actor, and it was love at first sight for him. To get closer to Mana, Suniel first became friends with her sister. He then asked one of his and Mana’s common friend to organize a party. Suniel became friends with Mana in that party, and went for a bike ride after that. Soon, they became friends and fell in love with each other. They waited for almost nine years to tie the knot as their parents were not happy with their inter-religion relationship.
- Mana started her career as a fashion designer and started her fashion label “Mana & Isha” along with her sister.

- In an interview, when she talked about being a star wife, she said,
I have never thought of myself as a star wife. It wasn’t a conscious decision but I just feel that though it’s fabulous being Mrs Suniel Shetty, I am my own person. I am still the Mana people knew me years ago. People say I am still so accessible and down-to-earth, but why would that change? Suniel has still stayed so humble. It’s our upbringing and character. We don’t get overwhelmed by the trappings of success. I do attend some filmi parties but I don’t belong to any camp. In the film industry, Suniel is known as anna (elder brother) and that says a lot. While star wives hate other star wives they have always supported me in whatever I have done. It’s been a fabulous relationship with whoever I know.”

I manage because I have days chalked out for certain work. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I visit Save The Children India office, Mondays is for marketing, Wednesday for product lines and Fridays and Saturdays for emails and vendors.”
